The Hanlon Park, Stones Corner upgrade and rejuvenation is coming! Have your say on how the park should look by contributing to Brisbane City Council's cooperative planning process, at https://yoursay.brisbane.qld.gov.au/SCPHP?tool=survey_tool#tool_tab. N4C is proposing the removal of the outdated concrete channelling and re-establish some aquatic life in Norman Creek, along with diverse riparian vegetation on the banks. A bit more nature will give people a beautiful and uplifting space for walks etc.
On 16th November, a group of ten staff from Suncorp Insurance spent most of the day helping out in the N4C native nursery. Instead of answering phone calls from distressed motorists, they got to grips with seedlings and potting mix, seed pods, weeds, osmocote and pot washing brushes.
Students of Buranda State School have been learning a lot about birds in their Science classes, thanks to Birds Qld, Birdlife Southern Qld and one of our members!
Riding bikes along the creek - sounds like fun, but there's a lot of vegetation there that is pretty important. Our bushcarer at Heath Park noticed some damage to mangroves and shrubs at Heath Park due to people creating their own bike path. Some local liaison was done and Council has been very supportive by providing signage to remind bike riders to keep off the vegetation that is right on the creek bank. Thanks!
